3-d PRINTING A HOUSE: EXPERIMENTS UNDERWAY IN CALIFORNIA…AND ...

I've been talking about the revolution in manufacturing that 3-d printing promises, and couching this in terms of a scenario or model that I've been discussing with former Assistant Secretary of HUD, Catherine Austin Fitts, and some other people, that the "push" of 3-d printing that seems to be taking place in the major and associated media may be a component of a retrenching of dispersed manufacturing back into North America by the oligarhical elite. This, coupled with the push to develop energy resources in North America and elsewhere in the Western World via fracking techniques indicates the seriousness of this push. As I pointed out recently, courtesy of information that Ms. Fitts shared with me, the USA recently passed "net zero" status in terms of energy imports and exports, meaning the USA produces as much of its petroleum needs at home as it imports from abroad. That move was confirmed, you'll recall, by the "sudden" and dramatic shift in Saudia Arabia's orientation as well, as it has begun seriously courting China and other energy importing nations.

There's something else happening, and that is the new focus on extending 3d printing technologies and techniques to large construction projects, and this use is rather breathtaking:

The 3D printer that can build a house in 24 hours

Notably, in addition to building the frame of a dwelling in a short period of time, as the article points out, it could dramatically reduce housing costs and also provide dwellings quickly in disaster relief efforts. Additionally, as the article notes, such dwellings would be much more robust than a conventionally built house. Basically, human construction crews would be used for the finishing, note the framing or dwelling itself. One can even imagine plumbing itself would be "injected" into the walls via metal or pvc injectors. (Repairs will be a problem).

Nice... if you want to live in a concrete house....

...or bunker. The possibilities that this large scale 3d printing offers to military and civil engineering are also enormous, from everything to quick construction of permanent bases to bunkers, and, coupled with the latest in plasma-boring technologies, underground installations...

...and, other types of structures: "Nasa’s Desert Research and Technology Studies (D-RATS) facility is investigating infrastructure elements in order to evaluate the feasibility of adapting and using the Contour Crafting technology for extraterrestrial application." Like everything else, one gets the distinct impression that the roll-out of 3-d printing was from the black projects world, and that it may have had something to do with space and defense all along, for that "extraterrestrial application" confirms another element of the scenario we've been developing: the roll-out of 3d printing, the rapid increase of domestic energy production, has some connection to the collateralization of space, a collateralization that will eventually require a permanent human presence on other celestial bodies, and the technologies to construct them in the most cost effective and speedy way possible.

Enter 3-d printing.

See you on the flip side....

  1. Nice technology for building super prisons for the rest of useless eaters takers to warehouse. Till they figure out who is useful to keep around as their slaves. As the Ben Rich rule goes this technology been around for about two generations at least. Or maybe we might be of use to them preforming the functions we always done for the past five hundred years forking over the loot and garrisoning the new conquest this time in space.

  2. you do know that they are fracking north america in half….

    and here we are, arguing about how s@#t life is….somethings never change with bono.

  3. Concrete monolithic domes have been around for a couple of decades now, and there is an outfit, Called Monolithic, promoting and building them all over the world.

    The spray techinque they use could be easily adapted to a mechanized (3D printing) format. The buildings are extremely tough (fireproof, tornado proof, earthquake proof, bullet proof – within limits, etc.), very flexible in design, and extremely energy efficient (save up to 80% in heating and cooling energy). It would be my house of choice, if I ever build my own.

    The Russians have licensed a technology for using molten basalt to create rebar and fabrics which are superior to regular rebar and asbestos, fiberglass, or kevlar. These can be used with the monolithic concrete technology, and possibly extended. It is a very simple process which is also ecologically sound.

    Basalt also has superior characteristics related to the natural energy frequencies connected with living cells, particularly in the infrared.

    3D printing with molten basalt? Just one step away from making anything you want on another planet or asteroid (or on Earth), or even making our own asteroid/spaceship nice and comfy.

    And this is just the public knowledge level of the technology . . . .

  4. The transistor, the laser, kevlar, are all rumored to have extraterrestrial origins. And now 3-d printing? Whatever became of Yankee ingenuity?
    In many parts of the world the primary building components are either/or a combination of concrete, masonry, aggregate or compacted earth often with an interior finished in wood. While adobe in New Mexico is perhaps the exception we would do well to pattern our house construction techniques after those in Northern Europe, particularly in our southern states where termites and humidity can destroy homes in short order. The initial cost of these homes, the real estate and lumber lobbies are no doubt partly responsible for our adherence to such change. The other biggest drawback is that the floor plans in such structures are more costly to remodel. But we might as well get started honing our skills if the Moon, Mars and destinations beyond are calling.
    Meanwhile someone needs to develop a method to unleash entire colonies of these 3-d machines simultaneously wherever they might be needed . . . a mega machine that builds an entire grid of 3-d subordinates so that the bankers can fast track their funding for redeveloping subdivisions in the wake of some recent calamity.

      1. Engineered ET? For a second there you had me thinking that I might have made yet another typo. Well anyhow, just remember, you started this, haha:

        Several years ago I listened to an interview, it might have been with the now discredited Dan Burish (or was it David Icke?) that the greys, or at least a particular strain of them, were/are manufactured. Even heard somewhere that they have no souls and might even be foot soldiers for the reptilians. Thank heaven it’s a lot simpler than that and there’s no hierarchy to memorize if all we need is a 3-d machine and a recipe.

        I’ll stop now before I undermine the overall quality of this otherwise respectable website.

        Regarding my prior missive just above “, . . . . . . responsible for our adherence to such change “, should have read RESISTANT (not adherence) to change.

        1. David Icke has access to some interesting information. But I’am nearly always suspect of someone who gets a lot of ink(press coverage in video/print/etc.).
          The point I was getting across is that humans may have been engineered. In fact, perhaps a scenario where the “perfecr” being, realized that there existed a flaw and too it upon themselves to “create” a better version. Or, the opposite, a more sinister version. or?
          Still within this whole/hole context is the universe itself, an expression of something much deeper, and perhaps beyond comprehension(even to the point of being engineered to be that way)

          1. Ah yes, ok, you went jedi on me and I was too dense to catch your drift.

            Yeah, I’m convinced we’re engineered. I’ll bet everything you have on that.

            I’m not sold on Icke, hook, line and sinker. But the broader narrative is right on.

            BTW, are you familiar with the research of Michael Tellinger?

    1. Concrete was the building material of choice in Croatia. Almost every modern house I saw in Split and along the Adriatic coast was made from concrete molds. Concrete is the largest export of the nation, coming from the millions of tons of limestone found in the region.

      All these boring concrete houses with dull lines and even more insipid finishes. When one of these machines can cheaply replicate a beautiful Colonial Revival or a Georgian Revival house, perhaps they’d be worth a look. Otherwise they are all big shapes created by simple children.

  5. It’s a pretty safe guess that the true state of most technolgies is a generation ahead of what *we* know about.

    A real game changer will be when we start to hear about advances in 3D printing with graphene.
